I'm surprised you didn't get into electric 70's Tuna earlier considering the power trio format that reminds me of another band who's name I forget. haha.

Arbutnot sent me some of those same goodies too! Good to see you PM

Ha--excellent point! I always liked Jorma and Jack, but it's been the last 15 yrs that I've really come to consider Jack one of my fav bass players (hey, that's "two Jacks" for me, right?), and a top five bass player in "our" version of the Rock/Roll world (whatever that is...meaning, I really do think he's under appreciated--he's so good).

After the death of Allan Woody (Allman Bros and Gov't Mule bass player), Warren Haynes made an album that served as an "open audition" for a new Gov't Mule bass player where they played different songs with a veritable Who's Who of the bass-playing world (George Porter, Jr, Les Claypool, Tony Levin, Chris Squire, Phil, Billy Cox, etc.). Jack C was one of them. There was also an associated live show in New Orleans that got filmed (I've got the bluray somewhere), didn't have all of the various players from the studio, but JC was there. Great show end to end (do with that what you will, the "holding up the bottom end" thing is really too easy).

Completely agree that Jack C. doesn't get near enough recognition.

I'm pretty sure he is the first rock bassist I can think of that played chords. Aggressive chords too. Love this! Starting at around 1:50 in
